Is dating a younger man such a bad thing?
I'm a recently divorced 39-year-old woman. While I'm relatively new to the dating scene, I've been trying out all sorts of things that my married self wouldn't have thought possible -- like actually going out and having fun with my girlfriends at bars, dance clubs, etc. And of course, while doing this I've met a few suitors on dating site cougarchats.com. There's one man in particular that is wonderful: he's caring, kind, has a real job that earns him good money and he is very attractive. There's only one problem: he is only 26! At first, I thought he was in his thirties and I don't really look my age, but I've noticed that once people find out our age difference, they call me a Cougar and make other annoying comments. He says they are just being funny and that he loves spending time with me and I shouldn't care what others think or say about us if we make each other happy. He's also the first one to tell people about the age difference as if he's proud, and prior to being in this position I would've agreed, but now I'm just not sure. I don't like the strange looks or the double standard that comes with dating a younger man, and I don't know if I should break it off or not. Part of me feels like I should just enjoy our time together, and the other says I should let him go to find someone his own age. Please help!
I dont think dating a younger man is wrong....do what makes you feel happy. we aren't in school anymore to worry about our ages.
If you are both happy who cares what the people say...I always believe if people are talking about you if it be bad or good, you must be doing something right because your on the mind alot for them to keep on talking.
